Who are this star’s new and dangerous friends?

Tammy Slaton has come a long way over the last year.

The 1000-Lb Sisters star has received nothing but praise from TLC viewers and social media followers following her extreme weight loss.

But now?

Slaton faces a new round of criticism.

Criticism, we should say, but also concern… as the 37-year-old shared a new video this week of herself (dressed all in black) and a couple of relatively new friends, Haley Michelle and Paola Román.

“Three is the magic number #magic #spiritualsisters,” Tammy captioned this video, which showed the trio spending time in a park.

This footage (posted below) marked the first appearance of Michelle, who calls herself the Paranormal Princess online, and Román on Slaton’s account in almost a month.

According to various comments, not everyone was enthusiastic about his return either.

Many people are concerned about the influence and motives of these women.

“Damn, I enjoyed the last month without seeing clout hunters,” reads the top comment on the post at the moment. “What a strange vibe.”

Another commented: “We don’t like them, Tammy girl.”

Michelle began having a frequent presence on Slaton’s social media earlier this year, seemingly out of nowhere.

Is he just using the veteran reality star to gain fame? By clicks? See an increase in her own fame levels?

In April, for example, the couple and Román took a self-described girls’ trip, which they posted about numerous times.

“Spiritual sisters, our powerful connection we don’t have to explain anything to anyone,” Michelle captioned an April 24 Instagram photo of her and Slaton. “You’re my best friend.”

It’s a sweet feeling, of course.

On the same vacation, Michelle uploaded a photo of her and Slaton with their feet dangling in a pool and wrote alongside it: “Proud of you.”

Part of the basis behind these concerns stems from the fact that Tammy has been seen on Instagram with her sister, Amy Slaton, since January 2023.

After her husband’s death last summer, Slaton said she was now a lesbian.

This statement has also led many to question whether Michelle is Tammy’s girlfriend or not, which could lead to a different response from critics if that were the case.

However, Tammy says otherwise.

In a TikTok video from April 29, Slaton, Michelle and Román danced to the song “Friends” by Marshmello and Anne-Marie while text on the screen detailed the lyrics:

FRIENDS / We’re just friends / So don’t look at me with that look.

On the other hand, it must be recognized that Slaton has lost hundreds of pounds since she was hospitalized in the fourth season of her TLC show.

And many observers continue to applaud her for this achievement.

We will conclude with what one of them said a few days ago:

Tammy looks great! Stop hating your friends. She needs support from other places and it seems that that is precisely what she is getting. I am proud of her progress.
